Group Volunteers

Aim of our groups:

To help our Recoverers rebuild confidence, self-esteem, familiarise them with strategies to aid conversation and to adjust to life following a stroke.


We offer one to one support at our groups, so by becoming a group volunteer, you will work closely with our Recoverers, helping them practise all aspects of communication.  You can do this by conversation, writing, drawing, gesturing and use visual communication aids provided.  Groups have a different theme each week, and activities may include discussions, pictures, word and number worksheets, quizzes, YouTube clips, art therapy, music therapy, table-top gardening and Drama.

Our groups are term time only and run for 2 hours per week.  The groups are run in Walton, Guildford, Ashford and Knaphill.

All our group Volunteers receive initial and ongoing training and are supported by the Groups Coordinator, Group Leader and Operations Manager.

If you’d prefer not to work one to one with our Recoverers, there are other opportunities at our groups, so please get in touch using the details below.
